186. Invest In Your Property by Hiring A Caretaker (AMA)

ama Sep 05, 2022

Welcome to another Ask Me Anything (Ask Us Anything?) episode! Each week we’ll answer your questions on STR, real estate, OTAs, and everything in between.

 

Calvin asks:

You’ve talked about finding a caretaker for your property (or properties), who is more involved and invested in your rentals than just a turnover team or pool cleaner. Do you have any advice on finding a caretaker (also called a property coordinator, inspector, or detailer)?

#STRShareSunday: The Acorn Cabin

strsharesunday Sep 05, 2022

It's time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing the Acorn Cabin

Love the little play on words and spelling in their instagram handle!

Here's the deal... host Claudia has a couple hundred instagram followers BUT she's really utilizing reels in her content. Some of her reels are getting thousands of views, which means thousands of pairs of eyes on her property! One of the things Claudia did really well was a collaboration campaign with an influencer. If you have influencers staying at your property, ask them to create a few reels of their stay!

Add this idea into your marketing tool belt , check out her reels, and give her some love! Her space is GORGEOUS

psst... we are cranking out reels left and right and it's paid off big time!

185. Create An Abundance Mindset Through Collaboration, Not Competition

Uncategorized Sep 01, 2022

Kyle Stanley is an AirBnB operator out of Fresno, CA. Although he has been doing AirBnB since 2015, he didn't truly turn it into a business until May of 2019.

When Kyle learned he could operate AirBnB's in homes that he didn't even own, he realized that he could scale the business quickly. In under 18 months, Kyle went from 1 listing to 25 listings, netting over $20K per month.

Now 3 years into the business, Kyle has over 60 properties and nets an average of $60k per month while spending just 3 hours per week in his business. With the extra time, he now teaches others how to replicate his path. Kyle also has a Youtube and Podcast called "The Fearless Investor."

#STRShareSunday: Lodge Noir

strsharesunday Aug 29, 2022

It's time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing Lodge Noir

There are three specific things we want to talk about that we love about Lodge Noir, especially in regards to staging.

1. They have an amazing dedicated workspace that overlooks the Blue Ridge Mountains. Great for anyone working from home!

2. They have a game room with a pool table and foosball table... perfect for a rainy day! It also catches your eye in the photos, especially if you're looking to travel with a group.

3. Let's talk LIGHTING This is something that often gets overlooked in design, and we talk about it often. They have a ton of overhead and secondary lighting fixtures that are AMAZING and lend to the design. Including exterior lighting (we love a bistro light!) They also have bedside lamps in each of their bedrooms. We see hosts leave these out a lot... don't leave these out!

Well done Lodge Noir!

Also... there are over 12,000 posts on this hashtag and tons of people are following it. THANK YOU!

Danielle and her husband Bret moved to Wilmington when they decided it was time for a change and not living at the beach was no longer an option. They traveled their way along the east coast looking for a new city to call home. It was important to them that they find a community where they could become established and really make an impact. Once they stumbled upon Wilmington, there was no going back, they knew they had found their home where they could...
